Maybe you can explain something to me. When somebody drops the ball, and all those large men dive for it and form what I call "the enormous multi-man crab," how is it determined who gets the ball and how does the ball get out of the crab? Like, in American football, if there's a fumble, they dive for it, and the ref has to call a stop to it and determine who has the ball. In rugby, the players somehow determine it and it's all orderly. Tooo orderly.

Grendel - this will explain all:

Wait, there's hookers in rugby? I'll have to start watching.

Yes! Thanks. The key part: "However, no other player in the scrum is allowed to handle the ball until the ball is free - not even the hooker."
